COURSE & Introlid
Windsurfing in Nijmegen? Yes you can!
The registrations for the introduction course are open again! Have you always wanted to learn windsurfing? Or are you curious if windsurfing is something for you?
Grab this opportunity to find out and become an introductory member of Aeolus. On top of receiving an Aeolus membership for 6 months, you’ll also get a three-day windsurfing course where our instructors will teach you the basics of windsurfing! Additionally, you will get the chance to go to another surf spot for a weekend together with your course members to get to know each other and go surfing for 2 more days! (Note: Weekend fees are not included in the course price). After the 3-day course, you can independently rig up a windsurfing set and go windsurfing with other Aeolus members whenever you feel like it. This way you have the time to improve your surfing skills. You participate as any other member of Aeolus and you can use all the equipment of Aeolus during that six-month period. In addition, you are welcome to many fun activities, drinks, and events both on and off the water.
Are you no longer a student but would you still like to come and surf? Check out our clinic for working people and request a clinic. Do you want to go windsurfing with your friends, colleagues, or family? Visit our website and request a private clinic for you and your group.
You can sign up for the 3-day course on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. You surf on the same day each weekend, so you will be in the Friday, Saturday, or Sunday group. The course takes place every day from 12:00 till +- 17:00, but having dinner with the course group afterwards is often an option. Don’t wait too long, because the course fills up quickly! The full schedule is as follows:
€ 49,- if you have a sports card of the Radboud sports centre (RSC)
€ 89,- if you DO NOT have a sports card of the Radboud sports centre (RSC)
When you have completed your registration, the costs will be automatically debited from your account. You may cancel without charge up to 2 weeks before the first course day. If you cancel later or do not show up, we will unfortunately have to charge you.
All the surf gear for the course, including wetsuits, is available at our clubhouse at the Kraaijenbergse Plassen. You don't need to bring anything more than your swimming gear, a towel, and some food and (warm) drinks. We meet up in front of the entrance of the university sports centre. Generally, we cycle to our surf spot (“de Kraaij/La Kraya”), although in some cases it is sometimes possible to carpool if there are enough cars available. After the course day, in some cases, the group decides that they want to have dinner together at someone's home or at a restaurant to buy/prepare a well-deserved meal and get to know each other a bit better while talking about the course day.
We as Aeolus adhere to the corona guidelines set by RIVM and the government. If you have any specific questions about this, you can always email firstname.lastname@example.org
